Exploring traditional separate domains such as programming and glass blowing allows me to take the best of different worlds to create unexpected shapes. A promising sparkle. The combination of craft and technology creates crossovers, hybrid shapes, and new possibilities. My research places “motion sensor”, “laser cutting” and “3D printing” comfortably next to “burner” and “annealing furnace”.
